Actors Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal, who starred as the ill-fated young couple in the 1970 romantic drama 'Love Story,' were honoured on Friday with stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

"Who would have thought I would end up with a star on the Walk of Fame? I thought I'd end up in jail and look where I am. So, that's pretty good," O'Neal, 79, said at a ceremony that was held online because COVID-19 restrictions prevented an in-person event.

MacGraw, 81, said the honour was "mind-boggling".

"I absolutely can't believe I'm on this sidewalk," she said.

Love Story became a cultural phenomenon and was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won one for best original score. It featured one of the most famous movie lines of the 1970s: "Love means never having to say you’re sorry."

The Hollywood Walk of Fame, a mile-long strip of plaques on Hollywood Boulevard, has honoured influential figures in the entertainment industry since 1960.
